The young Labour MP next to me, assuming I was one of her New Labour colleagues, said “My God, look across there, don’t those Tories all look like stereotypical Tories?” …
Well, I bet that a Tory sitting on the opposite side would be saying the same thing. And you know what? All MPs look like sterotypical MPs. Smart suits, pastel ties, etc. As shown by the rest of the paragraph

The Labour MP is showing her tribal subconsious. Its all us and them. Still none of this “working for the good of the country”, only for the good of the party.
